Luxury is Now More Affordable than Ever…

by Shane Rogers

For those of you that have already commenced your home building journey and are dedicating weekends to visiting display homes, you will probably already be talking about home designs, house & land packages and available land all in terms of lot widths.

Your world starts to be categorised by 12.5m, 14m and 16m as you focus on one of the key decisions you need to make in the new home process. You may even already have secured your land, so you need to ensure you find a home design that’s ideal for block and is designed to fit the specific width and depth.

Influenced by affordability and general land availability, 12.5m wide lots have become increasingly popular among buyers in the new communities across Melbourne. Recognising this trend, combined with customers’ feedback, the Carlisle product development team has again reinforced its commitment to customer-led innovation by developing a selection of Affinity designs to suit a 12.5m wide block.

Extending this range to suit these narrower blocks enables customers to purchase an Affinity home, complete with the signature architectural home design style and all the luxury Affinity inclusions, on the block of their choice, without having to compromise. It’s not often that you can experience such a long list of quality inclusions in a 12.5m frontage home design.

With opulent features, such as an indulgent spa bath, designer tapware, resort-style oversized showers and a deluxe entertainer’s kitchen complete with an expansive island bench and European stainless steel appliances, your 12.5m wide lot has just stepped up into luxury! These cleverly designed Carlisle Affinity homes provide a stunning sense of space, maximizing the available land width, without compromising on style.
